I’m sprightly 60 years old (I agree, I don’t look it…) and married to Tim, for most of the year we live on our yacht in Greece. Yes, it’s tough, but someone’s got to do it Believe me, it IS tough sometimes – who likes carrying pots of water in 30degC heat to fill up the tanks, or walk a mile to find a crazy Greek minimarket for a pint of milk, or wash their clothes in a bucket?
In the winter we come back to the UK so I can see my precious grandchildren, undergo some retail therapy and eat lots of good old British roast dinners.
I enjoy photography, and writing the occasional article for magazines.
About our yacht…..
Our yacht is a 40ft ketch (two masts) called Fandancer. We have owned her for 5 years, she was built in 1973 in Canada, by renowned designers Sparkman & Stevens, so she has a good pedigree. When we bought her, she was a wreck. My husband has renovated her single-handedly, renewing everything – including engine, water tanks and piping, electrical system, new windlass, anchor and chain. He has built a new swim platform, renewed showers and toilets, installed new LED lighting.
When she was seaworthy, we left the UK and sailed Fandancer to Greece!
